From Mad in the UK: This vibrant and challenging book is more than a collection of stories, as it tells a story itself of what went on (and still goes on) out of the public gaze. It is intended to steer the narrative and provide an opportunity for debate, to help both staff and services achieve greater excellence.
Mental Hospitals, Care Homes and Other Stories is written with past and present health and social care workers in mind. It is written, too, for politicians, health service planners and commissioners of services. Also, it will be of interest to academics and tutors on counselling, psychology and healthcare courses. With an absence of jargon, where possible, it is a fascinating read for the general public, too.
